Famous quotes containing the word marshall:

    Slowly the night blooms, unfurling
    Flowers of darkness, covering
    The trellised sky, becoming
    A bouquet of blackness
    —Frank Marshall Davis (b. 1905)

    Let us not succumb to nature. We will marshall the clouds and restrain tempests; we will bottle up pestilent exhalations; we will probe for earthquakes, grub them up, and give vent to the dangerous gas; we will disembowel the volcano, and extract its poison, take its seed out. We will wash water, and warm fire, and cool ice, and underprop the earth. We will teach birds to fly, and fishes to swim, and ruminants to chew the cud. It is time we looked into these things.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
